A wonderful find in a perfect location. The hotel is in a fantastic location almost on the beach at Altura. Altura is a village with holiday apartments a handful of bars and restaurant but as yet is quiet and unspoiled. All the rooms have magnificent sea views and are very well appointed maintained and modern. Latex type beds which were very comfortable and were made up with crisp white linen. The public areas are all kept very tidy and clean too. The pool was cleaned thoroughly each day and had sun beds parasols and huge bean bags around it on which to relax. We were not told that beach towels were available so had to purchase these. Take some with you. There was also a pool snack bar with waiter service. I was blown away by the view from our balcony of the endless beach sea and pool. There were also plenty of smart staff who were always very polite and extremely efficient helpful and professional.
Breakfast was excellent lots of choice of fresh fruit, breads, juices, coffee and a variety of cooked food too. We didn't opt for dinner but I heard no complaints and it smelled good.
After a terribly sad and very stressful year I needed a short break and this was perfect. A lovely quiet pool and pool area and just a 2 minute stroll along the boardwalk to the beach which stretches for miles.
If you choose to hire a car access to all the Algarve and also Spain is very easy as Altura is just minutes from the main road. The hotel also runs shuttle services to local towns too.
If you want nightlife clubs and English bars then go somewhere else because this is more refined.
All in all I would highly recommend this hotel and I hope to return again soon. A real gem.
